    Maybe I missed the point in the story where James Love had a bright flashlight with him.
    Temporarily blinding Hartman might just have saved his life, or lessened Love's
    injuries.

    They lost me when I opened the page and saw that propaganda photo of Trayvon Martin when he was 12.

    You missed the point. Those pictures were a comparison to the photos being run in the local papers and on local TV of the kid who died in the incident. In Knox and Henry County, the politically connected family used their power and influence to try to stir up animus for James Love and try to influence the Judge and local authorities. The mother, the daughter of a politically powerful father, has an interesting past and the male who died was racially mixed. By using earlier photos, much like the Martin case, they tried to argue the shooting was racially motivated against an innocent young boy. The truth was, he was a troublemaker and mean drunk who had worked as a bodybuilding coach who also had two criminal convictions for violence and whose own mother had obtained an order of protection against him.

    You should try the article again. It is about serious tactical mistakes that James Love made because of a lack of training and resulting in him being charged with Murder and spending well north of $100K to defend himself in part because of those mistakes.

    Like you, I have added super bright lights to my tactical plans. James Love did not have really bright lights, nor the training, nor really the reaction time to use one. Here is my new favorite: https://www.nebotools.com/p/MYCRO/595 400 lumens

    I've been going to Streamlight, and getting their 800 to 1000 lumen stuff. Never heard of a
    person getting sued for shining a light in a drunk or crackhead's eyes. It's not as glorious as shooting someone, but anyone even slightly intoxicated, strung out, or high has a lot
    of trouble adjusting their eyes to a sudden extreme change in light. If you can take advantage, you'll have the upper hand, and the other guy will lose the initiative.

    But there are very reasonably priced 400 lumen lights which work off normal (AAA) batteries,
    for @ 30$ at Home Depot and Lowes.

    Minding one's own business is usually a sound strategy.
